CMC New COVID ICU

New COVID ICU beds at Kannigapuram, May 27th 2021. More equipment will be added in the next day or so before patients can be admitted.

CMC has been able to set up new COVID ICU beds at Kannigapuram. Staff worked hard, yet again, to get this set up as quickly as possible. First finding suppliers with the equipment we need, then purchasing it and processing it when it arrives. Engineering staff, doctors and nurses then help to set it up and test the equipment.
